About

Caroline Shuttle
 

I came to glass 25 years ago after spending most of my working life in the bush and on the land. I searched for Tungsten in the Yukon, did geophysics in northern Manitoba, threw fish out of helicopters south of Algonquin, fought forest fires and walked miles and miles of timber. Then things changed.

I took MY FIRST GLASS COURSES IN 1996
I OPENED MY STUDIO IN 1997 AND NEVER LOOKED BACK!
...but when I looked up from my work table 25 years had passed! In that time I have been honoured to create many beautiful glass pieces and windows for people all over the world.

 “I work with glass because it's fascinating; wherever my mind can take me, glass will get me there. I can work with light, form, colour, depth… and create something purely functional or sculptural… it is totally alluring."

Glass takes me to fascinating places and areas of discovery, both within myself and its own depths. sometimes crystal clear light radiating through, magnifying tiny imperfections adorning them with rainbow hue. Deep, dark, rich vibrant colour, glossy smoothness, urging touch. Solid one moment, fluid the next, all its forms draw me.

I create glass art ranging from originally designed stained glass panels to gorgeous kiln-formed glass bowls and platters. My work is award-winning and found in homes and offices from coast to coast as well as in many other countries.
